From The Winnipeg Free Press - December 1898....Fight cards in Halifax, Toronto, and Calgary showcase several young prospects like Bill Mackinnon, Frank Osborne, Charlie Fraser and Alberta provincial rivals Clonie McFadden and Gus Burill...At Halifax Arena fans get to see their boy James Burke in action, now campaigning as 'Sailor Burke' after fledgling promoter Gussie MacLellan had noted a remarkable physical resemblance to the New York middleweight going by that nom de guerre...In the main event George Byers ends his storied career with a convincing decision over Montrealer Phil Miller...former Western Canadian champion George McRay gives the hometown cranks a happy ending to their evening at the fights with a one-sided stoppage of American journeyman Jimmy Danforth...Toronto's Johnny Jackson invades La Belle Province and upsets the huge French-Canadian Joe Montferrand in short order...Fight promoters and boxing clubs are scrambling to uncover a new headliner to challenge current Canadian champion Sam Langford but most have already fallen by the wayside or are just too green....As reporter Milt Dunnell of the Toronto Telegram sees it, "... Bob Day, Chummy Banks and Ross Delaney may have the punch but don't have the pugilistic skills to match the Nova Scotia battler and others like McRay and Jackson seem to lack the firepower to match Langford."...

From the Saturday sports section of The Los Angeles Herald....Jim Jeffries is declared the next mandatory challenger for world champion Jack Johnson by the IBU's championship committee following his lopsided victory over Sandy Ferguson of Canada....Ferguson later explained his poor performance was due to a broken left hand suffered in the third round...Johnson and Fireman Jim Flynn are in the final weeks of their training camps and visitors like James Corbett, Hank Griffin and Joe Choynski state both men are in absolute top fighting form...Flynn says he expects to enter the ring at between 190 and 195 while Johnson looks to tip the beam at just over 200 pounds...At New York's Pelican Arena an aggressive Marvin Hart won with relative ease over Gus Ruhlin who was almost out on his feet when the final bell rang...Lionel Butler came from behind to score a technical knockout over Ulysses Cannon at the Detroit Athletic Hall...Canadian heavyweight champion Sam Langford stopped Tom Sharkey at Brown's Arena, the end coming in the 8th round when the referee ignored Sharkey's corner and wrapped an arm around the bloodied sailor...Most at ringside conceded Langford could have knocked him out much sooner...At Newark, New Jersey Joe Jeannette knocked out Ray Mercer in five lightning fast rounds, sending him into early retirement ...Boston's Dan 'Porky' Flynn needed just five rounds to force a voluntary exit from the visiting Quaker Philadelphia Jack O'Brien who threw in the sponge after being put on the canvas at least once in every round....In a special twelve round elimination bout Down Under Australasian champ Billy McColl forced a stoppage of South Afrika's king Frans Botha halfway through the eleventh round and will advance to a fight with Empire champion Tommy Burns...Burns is set to defend his title this week against Fred Preston of Melbourne for a small purse and expenses...California's Sam McVea is expected to sail from New York for England and the continent on what his manager hopes will be a lucrative tour as his fighter has run out of willing opponents in America...In another battle of Chicago locals John Willie (193 1/2) managed a knockout of Klondike Haynes (176) at the Marathon A.C...

The February IBU Top Ten rankings from Mitt Slingers Magazine...Al Kaufman's drop from the third rung to number 8 after his unexpected loss to Mike Schreck in November allows Sam McVea to fill the spot behind Jeffries and Burns thanks to his win over Al Brown...The retirement of Bob Fitzsimmons shifts Sam Langford and Jim Flynn upwards while the Frenchman Raymond Berenger leaps over Schreck due to his decision over the latter in Montreal last September...At Melbourne Tommy Burns defended his Empire title with a technical knockout of Fred Preston in six rounds...Jack Johnson and Fireman Jim Flynn are in the process of closing their camps before heading to the weigh-in site at Fifth and Olive streets...Most of the best seats for the fight have been sold and it is expected few of the remaining 4,000 at Hazard's Pavilion will be empty come fight time...After much deliberation both camps have agreed on Ed Graney to officiate with his fee coming from a portion of the gate receipts...Johnson is said to have refused to go on before a $10,000 guarantee is deposited with his manager...Aside from his guarantee Johnson should take another 70% of the $15,000 purse as the odds-on favourite to win while Flynn will take home a cut of the gate receipts along with the loser's end of the purse...As we went to print Johnson was favoured at odds of up to 10 to 1 at some books despite Flynn's impressive record on paper...Only the most virulent anti-Johnson people give Flynn a puncher's chance due to his 16 kayo wins...

Clipped from The Pittsburgh Sentinel - February 1899....Jack Johnson's methodical dismantling of Fireman Jim Flynn is observed at ringside by Jim Jeffries after which Jeff pens an article that is carried by every major paper in North America...."...It was obvious from the opening round Flynn had no chance to defeat this fellow Johnson, and those behind the promotion of this debacle were only in it to sell the kinetoscope moving pictures to what they hope is a gullible public. A rematch with me will not sell because I will dispose of Johnson in quick order..."....The big Californian challenged the champion from ringside but only engendered a golden-tooth smile from "Li'l Artha"....Here at Turner's Hall Buffalo's Jim Fitzpatrick (194) knocked out Texas Bob Thompson (191) in four rounds setting up a meeting with the 'Georgia Thunderbolt' CC Smith who defeated Jim "Moose" Jeffords the other evening....

Denver Ed Martin joined Sam McVea in England and took part in a spectacular boxing carnival at London's National Sporting Club featuring a number of the top names in pugilism....the show was a success for the club but earned the American stars much less than they would have earned back home in New York or Los Angeles....Bill Squires defeated the number one contender for the European title in Raymond Berenger but was unable to secure a match with John L Gardner so elected to take ship back home to Australia to challenge Tommy Burns for his Empire title....Sid Russell decided to stay on when offered a bout with Norway's Bjarni Thorsen in Paris...
